This session presents an overview of a “curation-ready” workflow for digitized photographs that was implemented at the University of Notre Dame Archives. This workflow emerged as a response to the increased need for digitization services for campus stakeholders, faculty and students during the COVID-19 health crisis. Encompassing a holistic approach to digitization services, this session provides an overview of the workflow which includes digitization, pre-ingest preparation, ingest into a digital preservation system, and post-ingest work to ensure storage and discovery paths for preservation masters, access masters, and access proxies.  Borrowing from principles of data curation, this workflow integrates digital preservation methodology as well as data curation processes at the point of data creation to ensure “ready-access,” cost-effective and responsible stewardship of digital photo collections.
